BRINGING WOODLANDS TO LIFE

The Cruck Barn

The atmospheric Cruck Barn was  built by volunteers in the 1980s, and modelled on the Cruck Barn at the Avoncroft Museum of Buildings. It provides character  and atmosphere to the site and is a multifunctional space for displays of coppice goods, exhibitions about Small Woods’ work and meetings. It is open to the public on request.

f you would like your products displayed in the barn, please get in touch with Richard Thomason: [email protected].

We have an ethical timber policy that means we are unable to display goods made from CITES listed species.
